The Anker-Uhr (Anker = anchor, Uhr = clock), commissioned by an insurance company called "Der Anker", features 2.80 meter-high copper figures from Viennese history every hour, the only female being Empress Maria Theresia. At 12:00 every day, all twelve figures can be seen.
The Anker-Uhr can be found in the Hoher Markt, the oldest plaza in the city. The Hoher Markt used to be the city's center in the middle Ages.
